Raptor-ous Feeling

Harriers, kites, vultures, hawks, buzzards, eagles and falcons … all these magnificent masters of flight are combined together in one group: raptors. They range in size from the diminutive, sparrow-sized Black thighed Falconet to the gargantuan 24-pound Cinereous Vulture. All raptors are carnivores and possess incredible eyesight, powerful talons and physics-defying agility.

Thailand possesses 59 resident and migrant species of raptors; of the residents three have been extirpated and two are on the highly endangered lists.
